Take this class if you don't really need to know history. He is a great guy and loves to watch movies. You will too since that's what you get to do. If you need the AP test, then better start studying on your own.

One of best humans on this planet. This is the only class that I have ever looked FORWARD to. The ironic thing is, he can actually teach very well, he just doesn't like to teach. He is such a warm, caring, charming person to be around. He is someone you want to be around and he teaches many life lessons. Best teacher at the school, by an extreme amount, may not teach that much, but it is such a fun class

Imagine the best teacher in the world, Greenstein beats that teacher. He's totally awesome and is funny and entertaining. The only fault I can think of is his classsroom because it doesn't really have desks and it's kind of messy. For video film he's great. I don't know about history but he used to be principal at LCC so he has great credentials. Overall, probably among top 5 teachers at TP.

His class is extraordinaraly easy, especially for an AP class. I never opened the text and got an A from the class. All you really have to do is pay attention during class. The class is almost easy to a fault in the fact that it does not really prepare you for the AP test, and does not even covor half the material the other teachers covor.
